SIGNO_ is the final form of a series of experiments and creations that aimed to master an optical phenomenon. Between two specific states of sound and light, this phenomenon forces a stream of water to enter a vibratory state.

The first prototype, titled Uninvisible, was produced in 2015 by Transcultures. It was the first step of an exploration around the concept of aquatic choreography, that has since become one of the main research focus of the artist. After several related works, the artist wanted to considerably expand the initial concept, which was based analogue devices. SIGNO_ adds digital technologies and programming, to enable interactivity between each of the project’s components. It aims to to fully exploit this visual phenomenon that was previous only visible in two dimensions; to spread it into three-dimensional space and explore its whole potential.



Look Inside



Alexis Choplain (Brussels), who is involved in experimental approaches using exclusively analog technologies, debuts his production with an interest in vibratory phenomena that combine mechanics, sound and light. Working to hybridize the arts and sciences, he diverts and appropriates scientific vocabularies and tries to extract a plastic potential. He focuses his current research on the design of his own electrical devices in order to understand the internal functioning of the machine: this process of deepening opens the way to more and more intimate projects with the machine, leading him to the interest of a more fundamental field, electricity, and immaterial energy. The only limits of usage, of which, are designated by our imagination.
